Tri-County Vanguard - - THEN AND NOW -

The bot­tom floor of what was once was a Methodist Church at cor­ner of Ann and Wa­ter Streets in Shel­burne (circa 1899) still stands and has been used for a va­ri­ety of pur­poses and busi­nesses over the years. The build­ing on the right in the old photo was the G.T. Mac­Don­ald’s Drug Store, Shel­burne’s first phar­macy. His­toric photo from the Shel­burne County Mu­seum col­lec­tion ac­ces­sion #10a.

The Ma­sonic Hall (cen­tre) is still stand­ing and still used as a Ma­sonic Hall up­stairs. Down­stairs is re­tail space. On the right is Robert­son’s Hard­ware, which is still in use to­day as re­tail space. His­toric photo from the Shel­burne County Mu­seum col­lec­tion ac­ces­sion #D-6.

The build­ings on Shel­burne’s his­toric Dock Street are much the same to­day as they were in years gone by, ex­cept back in the day it was a work­ing water­front. To­day, the area wel­comes hun­dreds of tourists each year and hosts nu­mer­ous com­mu­nity events. Build­ing pic­tured are the Dory Shop and the Cox Ware­house.
